Sunday Wrap-Up

WOW! Sunday was incredible! 2 classes back to back; 2 year olds who are crying to be in our class; Puke (all over me and the floor); teachers with flat tires; what more could you ask for on your first 1st day of 2 services and a new class for 3 year olds & k4’s !! And yet it was still a great day. The children seemed to love their new class! And they all went home having heard how very much Jesus loves them, that Jesus will answer their prayers and that “God made our World.” It’s all about loving the children and their parents enough to take YOUR time and pour Jesus into these precious little ones hearts. Sometimes, all it takes is a smile and a hug. (And a strong gag reflex!)With starting our new 3’s & 4’s class and 2’s only class, and with going to 2 services, we have several ministry positions available in our Kids Life areas: Infants, 2 year olds, 3’s & K4, and K5 – 5th grade.Loving and ministering to children is such an incredible and fulfilling way to love and minister to God!But how can I do this? you may say. Let me give you some examples:

Changing a baby’s diaper while whispering a prayer for that baby blesses not only the baby, but the baby’s whole family.

Sitting on the floor, playing blocks with a 2 year old while smiling and saying “did you know Jesus loves you?” “Can you say Jesus?” The name of Jesus is very powerful!

Singing and dancing with a group of 3 & 4 year olds before you sit down to tell them a Bible story, that surprisingly enough, they WILL remember! And a t the right time, God will bring the understanding.

And last but certainly not least, playing cup stacks with the older kids before you begin your “Kid Mo” lesson, and for that one hour, that one service, you’ve had a chance to put something into the heart of a child that will not return void! (according to the word of God) And may be the thing that changes that child’s life forever, or maybe just for that moment, but none the less, they have been touched, not by you, but by God Himself!

WOW! Sign me up again. I’ve just inspired myself! Can I work in ALL the age groups!

No, unfortunately I can’t. And that ‘s my point. It takes all of us taking our turn, spending our time, in the Kids Life areas of ministry.

Don’t worry, all of my blogs will not be a recruiting session…maybe.

One last thing, just want to say a big thank you and may God richly bless you, to all those who helped in our Kids Life groups this past Sunday during both services! You are awesome! A special thank you to Polly Zinn and her family who, at the last minute, came in to help with 2 year olds, and did an excellent job! God is smiling.

Tip for the day:

Bless someone else today. Maybe someone you don’t even know or someone who is not your best friend! It’s amazing how good it will make you feel.

Loving our children always,

Ms. Annie
